I find it hard to care these days, there was a time when upgrading every year you pay off, now though every time I upgrade I see no differences. At least in the next coming years there will be a need again as they push the new consoles and our existing consoles struggle to cope as much....

I dunno I just want the time back when hardware was exciting, now I get more joy out of monitors, they're the real factor in how good games can look.

I didn't see any gains from my GTX460 to GTX560Ti to HD7870/GTX660....but when I got my new monitor (from Samsung SyncMaster 2333HD to LG Flatron E2551) it was like a night and day difference. Nothing beats a good monitor...

460 to a 560ti is a small upgrade. 7870 to 660 same.

Agreed. When I upgraded to my 680 from a 470, I was like....well I can use lots of AA now, cool? Upgrading to 120hz though made the purchase worthwhile to the extreme.

But the Titans were mostly killed by their own children. The Titan killer must be a next generation Geforce card

I'm not sure if it will truly kill the Titan but for me if the performance is almost as good as a Titan but with 200-300$ smaller price tag it can definitly qualify as an awesome card. I'm sure though that it will outperform the Titan in the many AMD favoring games out there like Tomb Raider etc.

Um no, i don't want a 700$ flagship GPU wake up man. We need to get back to regular pricing 499-550$. Then competition ensues causing the 780 to drop further.

Lol, going by the third picture down, how did that conversation start?

I realize that but if the 290x beats Titan and launched at 700$ it would suck for most of us. My point is we as consumers at least need to rid of this insanely high pricing of flagship GPUs that's seemingly turning our way. Next thing you know every flagship will be 600-650$. 650$ for 30% more performance over existing architecture? 500-550 is where the line needs to be drawn IMO.

Hate to break it to you, but consumers dont have power over how much something costs.

If theres enough want, then companies will and can put whatever price tag they see fit.

Everything is going up in cost, even our toys.

Which goes back to needing both companies to compete well against each other to keep prices down.

It would be nice to have a third competitor come in honestly.

Hilbert just tell me this, will we be underwhelmed by this card?
